Welcome Chartboost and AdColony to our monetization family
Outside of the 12+ other monetization plugins now available, Corona is also proud to announce support for Chartboost and AdColony. As some of you know, these ad networks are quite possibly the most heavily requested by the community and we are pleased to offer them officially. As with our other monetization plugins, these will be kept up-to-date as their underlying SDKs are updated to ensure the best user experience.
Unlike our other monetization plugins, integration of Chartboost or AdColony works slightly differently. In order to use them in your projects, you will first need to activate Corona Ads, create an app within the Corona Ads dashboard, and then activate the app for Chartboost and/or AdColony.
To be clear, you do not need to use Corona Ads — simply add your apps and activate these third-party ad networks within the Corona Ads dashboard. You also do not need an account with Chartboost or AdColony; you will receive payment for user activity from Corona Labs instead of from the ad networks directly.
As always, the Corona Labs team is dedicated to ensuring the quality of builds while making the overall process of developing apps easier and more profitable. That’s why we are excited to offer you over a dozen monetization plugins — and now Chartboost and AdColony — as improved ways to monetize your apps. Join us in the forums to discuss these great additions.
